LEGOLAND® CALIFORNIA RESORT IS BUILDING AMERICA’S FINEST CITY FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER…AND YOUR VOTE COUNTS!
CARLSBAD, CA. (November 10, 2022)- Candidates, Propostions, LEGOLAND®?... It’s election week, and LEGOLAND® California Resort is looking to “brick the vote!” Beginning today, fans can cast their ballots for which landmarks they’d like to see constructed entirely out of LEGO® as part of the Park’s newest addition to Miniland U.S.A.: San Diego. Planned to be unveiled in spring of 2023, the family theme park’s Master Model Builders have begun construction, and need help from guests to identify the best landmarks, iconic structures and historical buildings in “America’s Finest City”to be created in LEGO form.
“San Diego is one of America’s most beautiful destinations filled with incredible architecture, landscapes and history – making it an obvious choice when selecting the next city to add to Miniland U.S.A,” said President of LEGOLAND California Resort Kurt Stocks. “Our in-park Master Model Builders are extremely passionate about this project, and they can’t wait to collaborate with LEGOLAND Parks fans near and far on the future of this very special addition to Miniland. Each build will provide guests with a deeper connection and understanding of our home city and will encourage our local and out of town visitors to embrace all that San Diego has to offer.”
As the world’s first LEGO version of San Diego, Master Model Builders will draw inspiration from such areas as the Gaslamp District, Coronado, Del Mar and San Diego’s incredible coastline. The new land – which is already under construction - will feature prominent scenes, settings and themes that make up the city’s DNA. The new San Diego LEGO section will join New York, Washington, D.C., Las Vegas and San Francisco, all located in Miniland U.S.A at the heart of the Park. Guests excited to “brick the vote” and learn more about the new San Diego Miniland area are encouraged to follow the Resort’s official Instagram at @legolandcalifornia and cast their vote through Instagram story polls.
Opening in spring of 2023, Miniland San Diego is included in the price of admission to LEGOLAND® California Resort. For LEGOLAND California Resort ticket prices, operating schedule and additional information, visit www.LEGOLAND.com, follow us on Instagram or call 760-918-LEGO (5346).
